Best practice when creating passwords

Our top 5 tips for creating the most secure password

Creating the best password is important for keeping your Allbase accounts and personal information secure. Here are some tips for creating strong and effective passwords:

  • Use a combination of letters, numbers, and symbols: Using a mix of different characters makes it more difficult for someone to guess or crack your password. Aim for at least 12 characters in your password, and try to use a combination of upper and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols.
  • Avoid using personal information: Don't use your name, address, phone number, or any other personal information as part of your password. These types of details are often easy for someone to guess or find out.
  • Don't reuse passwords: It's important to use a unique password for each of your online accounts. If you reuse passwords, and one of your accounts gets compromised, all of your other accounts could be at risk.
  • Use a password manager: A password manager is a tool that securely stores all of your passwords in one place. You only need to remember one master password to access all of your other passwords. This can help you create and use strong, unique passwords without having to remember them all.
  • Enable two-factor authentication: Two-factor authentication (2FA) adds an extra layer of security to your online accounts. It requires you to provide an additional piece of information, such as a code sent to your phone, before you can log in to your account. This makes it much harder for someone to gain access to your accounts, even if they have your password.

By following these tips, you can create strong and effective passwords that will help keep your online accounts and personal information secure.
